West Wilkes Football Coach resigns

I have not heard anything yet. I hope they choose wisely. We need a true BlackHawk not a transplant.

By the looks of the scores the mommy’s and daddy’s should have been coaching cause he sucked. Should have canned him sooner

Its because the mommies and the daddies got mad cause they couldnt do the coaching. Its the West way. You either let mommy and daddy coach or you are a horrible coach. West you will never be anything until you stop your daddy ball. The most talented kids are NOT the kids of the mommies and daddies that try to run the school. Your normal kids that you never see the parents are where the talent is at. They usually dont even try out anymore because of this. West you get what you deserve. Do yourself a favor hire a coach that has the toughness to coach and put mommy and daddy on the bank and your relationship with the kids should NOT be a friend but should be a coach/athlete relationship where the athlete does what the coach says and dont run to mommy and daddy crying.

He is a really decent and hard working fellow. West is a tough place to coach football just like a lot of schools. He did not have a ton of talent and to work with its a shame he decided to leave. Any school he decides to go to will be lucky to have him.

Liked the guy but he just wasn't the right pick for them.

He wasn't a West style kinda guy at his core. He did change his offenses up over the years which was smart on his part but he just wasn't what they needed in '13. Wasn't much of a fan of the guy before him at all but he at least got the kids to play hard consistently after his first year. Hunt never did really; he had that 1 good year in 2016 with that group of kids. They were solid on JV but they never fully peaked like they could have. The 2015 team was a disappointment we scrimmaged them and they were very underwhelming. Take away the non conference schedule the past two years they woulda been lucky to win a game. No reason for that much of a drop especially in 2017 with Ortiz.

Never forgot his first year we 7 on 7'ed them and they got rowdy because us and everyone else was beating them; guy never had the control he needed. We tried to 7 on 7 them in 2016 and they cowarded out at the last minute we quit dealing with him after that. He did it to himself.

West's a good school and hard working community they deserve better.

About **** time, that coach could not control the kids at West Wilkes. He lacked a personal connection with the kids and that is a skill that is required for a High School football coach. The last game vs North Wilkes showed how much the kids respected him.

Yes he did, it is about time, the kids at West deserve so much more... should have been fired years ago, was not the right fit for the Hawks
